The REEL School Program is a Total Immersion Program for serious film-makers. It includes immediate hands-on experience with students involved in producing films for actual distribution. Students are involved in all areas of film-making from writing screenplays to actual film production to the business of film and film distribution.
Students are able to work with, and be mentored by, professional film-makers. The program is opened to both high school and college students who are serious about film making.
This year the program has moved to Kamas and will be housed at the Uinta Center for the Arts.
Students who help complete a film may be eligible to receive residuals from qualifying films that become distributed in the national and international film market. It is conceivable for a student to earn back their tuition.
High school students can receive a BA and their High School diploma at the same time.
